As I near 50, certain things spark childhood memories.

Being raised in North Dakota, everyone thinks it's cold all the time. For 9 months out of the year, yes, it can be. But what you might not realize is that the Jet Stream has a home in North Dakota. At least it did before Al Gore created global warming.

What that meant was that it was quite windy in the summer, and the fall. Oh, and the spring. And to be honest, the winter as well. So one of the fun things I liked to do was to watch the clouds move across the sky.

Of course others would do it by lying down in the grass and looking up. Then those idiots would have to be checked for ticks and other bugs. I took the common sense approach and did it from the comfort of the living room looking out the window. But just because I hated being outside, doesn't mean I didn't test the limits of my imagination by taking nature's Rorschach Test and identifying shapes in the clouds.

When was the last time you did that. Here's your chance.
